New Construction Home for Sale in The Florida Keys - Professional Designed by Christopher Elwell
In a place renowned for its luxurious vacation homes, the developers of The Reserve at Sombrero Beach have upped the ante by requesting the services of esteemed designer, Christopher Elwell, owner of Royal Furniture and Design.
With his extensive background dating back to 1990, Elwell has designed, remodeled, and repositioned thousands of homes throughout the Florida Keys, Key West and the country. Known for his can-do attitude and amazing attention to detail, Christopher has been a long sought-after designer for owners looking for a visionary’s touch.
Mr. Elwell was tasked with not only the interior design, but identifying “the vision” for the Elsium Residence, located at 449 Sombrero Beach Rd; the first Estate Villa being offered at The Reserve. (“Elsium”) meaning Paradise and the tone setter for Elwell’s vision, Christopher explains, “by choosing a ‘Coastal Chic’ design, I thought ‘you’re in paradise’ and I want you to feel that, not only outside your home, but also continue that feeling inside. We are bringing the outside in and taking advantage of the amazing views of the water and the lush landscaping.”
When you pull up to The Reserve at Sombrero Beach, the developers want you to expect something spectacular. The furniture, all selected by Royal Furniture and Design, is a mixture of upholstered fabric pieces, distressed woods in multiple finishes and some brushed metal accents. It feels very coastal chic, elegant, yet comfortable.
Elwell says, “I think the design is just perfect for this unique development. The buyers will be the ones enjoying an inside and outside lifestyle to include boating, swimming, and relaxing at the end of a long, fun day. The interior will allow them to be very proud of their interior design, yet feel casual enough to relax and put their feet up when need be. The coastal chic décor will make them feel comfortable and relaxed whether they are entertaining friends or using the home themselves.”
The developer of The Reserve declares, “We are very excited to have Chris working on the Elsium Residence and know how extremely talented he is at walking into a completely empty room and transforming it into a great livable space. Given his background with homes in the Keys, we knew he would be a perfect fit, and would be able to give our clients exactly the comfort and aesthetic level they are looking for when buying in the Keys.”
